TikTok has yet to acknowledge the outage. The Chinese company did not respond to a request for comment.

Users took to Twitter to vent their frustration at the outage.

One person tweeted: “Is it just me or is it @tiktok_us
I can’t see my videos or any other creator’s videos. “

Another wrote: “Tiktok is down and I have nothing else to do with my life so I went straight to twitter.”

And a third said: “Is anyone going down to the TIKTOK OR MY PHONE IS S**T.”

Users post and watch short videos in which they dance, lip-sync, act out sketches, and more.
